Suffragette City is about collaboration and pooling our community's collective talents to better everyone involved. Our zine showcases creatives local to our home base in Brooklyn, NY as well as across the country and abroad. Especially as an emerging female or non-binary artist, having a high quality publication backing up your work shows people that others take your work seriously and that they should too. We are advertisement free and funded entirely by amazing people like you. We're proud to be a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas.
We are made up of artists, writers, and musicians aiming to break up the cis male dominated creative scenes. We produce events booked by women, with female and non-binary fronted bands, and encourage the venues we work with to hire and staff non cis males for all roles—from working the soundboard, to running the door.
Suffragette City is here to support your work, to offer career advice, to workshop something new, and to provide a platform to get your voice heard.

I don’t care what medium I’m working in, as long as I’m being creative
Of the different creative things I do, I’m probably best at organizing overly ambitious projects and events
Building community is the most important thing to me
I’ve been making zines since high school, so not much has changed in the past 15+ years
